The Roanoke College women, top-ranked in the preseason ODAC conference coaches’ poll, stayed unbeaten with a 72-62 win over Emory & Henry in Emory Sunday. The Maroons used a 15-8 run to close the third quarter to seize control and go on to a 10 point win.
Roanoke led by seven points after the third quarter. E&H would get as close as five, but a three-pointer by Rose Sande followed by an Ayanna Scarborough layup and Roanoke would enjoy their first double-digit lead of the afternoon. Sande would add five more points in the closing minutes to secure the non-conference, road win.
Four Maroons finished in double figures in a game that saw eight lead changes and seven ties. Scarborough netted a team high 14 with Renee Alquiza adding 11. Morgan Micallef and Sayre Brandstatter each scored 10 while Kayla Kinsler added 10 rebounds and Micallef nine. Whitney Hopson (6) and Brandstatter (5) handed out 11 of RC’s 18 assists.
The Maroons were scheduled to play at Randolph-Macon on Tuesdasy but results were too late for publication. Roanoke will play their fourth straight road game to open the season at Guilford Friday, finally returning home to host Eastern Mennonite on Sunday afternoon at 2 pm.
